Digital music service platform, Spotify, is reportedly introducing its revamped Your Library tab, which is anticipated to deliver an improved way to help users in exploring their collection of playlists and saved music. The rollout of the update will come about on both the Android and iOS systems in the coming weeks.

Apparently, the biggest change to the Your Library tab would be the ability to assist users to browse as well as search their entire collection, inclusive of music and podcasts, in one place. The company has also introduced a new grid view to display large-tiled playlist, album, and podcast cover art, along with an improved sorting feature for viewing the libraries alphabetically as well as by the recently played content.

It has also been reported that Spotify would be adding dynamic filters to allow its users to choose from an album, playlist, artist, or podcast in order to see what audio in their library matches the criteria. In addition, there will be download filters to make the search for the downloaded music easier.

Lastly, the online music company would also be bestowing its users an option to pin over four albums, playlists, or podcasts for their easier access. The pinning of these items would keep them at the top of the user's library.

As per reports, these changes by Spotify come amidst a flurry of novel features, such as the music company’s recently unveiled podcast subscriptions, as well as the option of listening to songs from within the Facebook app.

Sources have also revealed that the online service platform launched the Hey Spotify wake word along with a redesigned desktop and a web player.

It was previously disclosed that Spotify is supposedly raising prices for most of its plans across numerous regions, particularly in several parts of the U.K. and Europe which are witnessing the most drastic changes.

The new price hike from Spotify is anticipated to come into effect beginning Friday, April 30.
